After we moved into our charming old rental last year, Thursday cleaning day was one of the first routines I implemented. Since Billy has Friday off, it made sense to get the house in order before our weekend. It was soooo wonderful to know that at the end of Thursday, everything would be clean and tidy for another week. Then I got pregnant and we were on the road a lot and then we moved, and Thursday cleaning day fell by the wayside...But the last few weeks I've put it in place again.
Since I had a lot of catching up to do, I'm not sure it's been evident. Today is the first day I feel I've made significant headway and I might actually get the whole house clean by supper time. What a wonderful feeling!
This is one of the first things I want to work back into my routine after Baby comes. Maintenance is ideal, but clutter, dust, and odds and ends gather during the week and a good cleaning keeps all that under control. Speaking of which, I'd better get back to work if I'm going to get everything done.
What about you? Do you have one cleaning day each week? What are your best cleaning and maintenance tips?
